SATURDAY and SUNDAY rates and Job costing to projects in Advance Payroll

I've just signed up to Payroll Advance.

 

I can't figure out how I would add Saturday and Sunday different hourly rates. We have 6 employees who work randomly work weekends and are paid different hourly rates.

 

I also want to know how that would work if I use weekly timesheet to input the hours for projects directly. I understand you can put hours in from "weekly timesheets" for 7 days, which then gets updated onto the payroll, but how are the Saturday and Sunday rates updated during this process.

 

I must admit, I'm coming from software called Moneysoft and the hourly rates holiday planner is so much more simpler that with your Advance Payroll.

Hi Sanjay-You'd have to create different pay categories for each rate and apply them to the employee from within the payrun. It's not possible to apply different rates to timesheets so you'd have to import the timesheets to the payrin ans do some manual adjustments. We will of course pass your comments on to our developers for their consideration and encourage you to leave feedback from within the product.

Hi 

Thanks for the reply.

 

I can do the manual adjustment on the pay run, but that will not update the projects and hence the costs for projects will be way out if we have projects running for numerous weekends.

 

Ideally, there should be a cost/allocate to projects from within the pay run so we could (if we wanted to) allocate expenses and re-imbursements without having to make separate entries. Many companies operate on variable pay rates for shift work, night work, holiday work etc etc. It would be good to have the rates applied to projects when timesheet option is used.

 

Our current system which is nearly 20 years old has fully integrated job costings from vendors customers and payroll.

Hello Sanjay, we do take that fully on board and as John mentioned we will pass on your feedback, if you could also add feedback in the cog>feedback section as well that would be great. Thank you
